How to Solve Optical Module Compatibility Problems
Knowledge Base + 2024.01.24

All the indicators correspond to the same standard optical module, according to the different manufacturers, the actual production of optical modules are also different. But in general, the same standard optical modules made by various optical module manufacturers are all fully functional, so why do optical modules still have incompatibility problems when they are put into practical use?

The production of each optical module is to comply with its corresponding standards, but in actual use is not necessarily normal operation, this is because each manufacturer of optical modules for the use of equipment has a large and small encryption, can not match a variety of brand equipment is the compatibility of the optical module. Can do their own brand of optical modules can use other people's equipment is good compatibility, other brands of optical modules can not use their own equipment is poor compatibility.

We usually encounter different manufacturers with the same parameters of the optical module in the same batch of equipment used in the same effect is not the same, the performance of the performance of a large difference in the reasons for the module is the compatibility of the advantages and disadvantages. This issue is not to be taken seriously, will cause a serious impact, both for the quality of the project and the process.

Compatibility issues often occur in the general on the big brands, other optical modules can not be used in the big brands of equipment, but the price of branded optical modules is very high, and even said that the price of more than one optical module has exceeded the price of the device itself, so the compatibility of manufacturers will appear with the market demand.

Compatibility vendors through the production of highly compatible optical modules to solve the adaptation problem, but remember to buy compatible vendors of optical modules before the compatibility of different brands of equipment adaptation, their prices for branded optical modules much lower. Both reduce the cost of optical modules, but also to meet the compatibility of different brands, two birds with one stone.

Optical module can be said to be the core accessories in optical network communications, through the photoelectric and electro-optical conversion, the sending end of the electrical signals to optical signals sent through the fiber optic transmission, the receiving end to accept the optical signals will be converted to electrical signals. 5G, cloud computing, big data and other high-tech have risen, the development of optical modules has also been accelerated in the data centers, enterprise networks, base stations, and other optical network transmission in the generation of updates.
